successful for the obama campaign and continues to be this year. you can raise big contributions too. it's important to remember that direct contributions to the candidate are still limits. only $2500 per election so $5,000 per candidate. and there are prohibitions on who can give money to the candidates. unions are not permitted to make contributions. that's been the law for more than 40 years and it still is. they're about to spend their own money independently of the campaign if they want to but they can't make contributions. presidential candidates raise money at the national level. there are a loft of wealthy individuals who support them. so the obama campaign stands out in that respect a little bit. the caller is making another point which is that the money in this race this year has been much more focused in many respects on a small number of individual people. the attention in this spending is focused on a small number of people who have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the process. i think the number that gets you to a majority of the money -- about 60% of the outsid

left, the race is as close as ever. a point dramatized in a new obama ad, reminding voters that the 2000 race was decided by a mere 537 votes in florida. >> this year, if you're thinking your vote doesn't count, that it won't matter, well, back then, there were probably at least 537 people who felt the same way. >> reporter: and mitt romney has picked up the endorsements of two iowa newspapers that supported obama last time. one that hasn't supported a republican since richard nixon. with the storm coming and the race so tight, both campaigns are trying to bank as many votes as possible in states with early voting. with lines especially long in virginia and maryland. the superstorm has not stopped this campaign. mitt romney is just finishing up his third event today in ohio. he will be campaigning in three states tomorrow. the president will be on the trail, also, campaigning in florida. david? >> it will be a tricky balance. jon karl tonight, thank you. >>> when we come back here this evening, the other big event this week, halloween. so, tonight, one spectacular before and after.

feeling what we felt four years ago where it was moving toward president obama. and then it was completely blunted by exactly what you're saying, that first debate performance by the president and a good one by mitt romney. >> willie, you brought it up, and i've seen it, too, mika and i have seen it wherever we go, for some reason liberals, democrats, they're scared. i don't know if they're just naturally -- more naturally worried than conservatives, but everywhere i go, people come up to me and grab me and go, it's going to be okay, right? he's going to win. >> well, i live in the heart of obama country. i live on the upper west side of manhattan. >> and they're calm. >> no, they're not. not particularly calm, but it's because they believe this is a really important election. they think mitt romney would be a disaster for the country. so yeah, i think there's -- they still have confidence in the president, but they're worried that it's as close as it is this close to the election. >> i think there may be a shock, mika, that it's kind of like you, the first time it hits you afte
